New IoT equipment for 6 Living Lab to be soon realized

Water Oriented Living Labs (WOLLs) for the six university partners in Asian Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) involved in INOWASIA project will be realized soon by the end of this year. A WOLL is real-life, water-oriented demo and platform-type environments with a cross-sector nexus approach, which have the involvement and commitment of multi-stakeholders. Then WOLLs provide a field lab to develop, test, and validate a combination of solutions which include technologies and their integration, as well as a combination of new business models, and innovative policies, based on the value of Water.

A main target is to demonstrate the application of Internet-of-Thing (IoT) technologies on these 6 WOLLs. The IoT equipment to be installed in these 6 WOLLs includes sensors for measuring soil humidity, air-water-soil temperature, water conductivity. All of these sensors will be integrated and remotely controlled through a computer system. Up on completing installation, these 6 WOLLs would draw attraction from many stakeholders on water-resource management by the way of understanding and respecting the nature and principle of water/water resources which is the fundamental of all lives and ecosystems.
